Great Zoom into Orlando, FL: Epcot Spaceship Earth


Published 4/13/2001


Using data from different spacecraft and some powerful computer technology, visualizers at the Goddard Space Flight Center present you with a collection of American cities in a way you have never seen them before. Starting with our camera high above the Earth, we rush in towards the surface at what would be an impossible speed for any known vehicle. Passing though layers of atmosphere, the colors of our destinations shimmer with their own unique characteristics, and suddenly we find ourselves floating in virtual space just above the ground. Note: A seamless zoom from space to the ground, using data from Terra-MODIS, Landsat-ETM+, and IKONOS, and ending at Spaceship Earth in Epcot outside of Orlando, Florida. Animator: Greg Shirah (NASA/GSFC), Horace Mitchell (NASA/GSFC), Marte Newcombe (GST), Eric Sokolowsky (GST). Scientist: Darrel Williams (NASA/GSFC). Platforms/Sensors/Data Sets: IKONOS, Landsat-7/ETM+, Terra/MODIS.
